Wednesday Class – Spring Term

Lama Jigmé is giving every Wednesday a very precious series of teachings about the preliminary practices – the Ngöndro. The teachings are translated by Dylan Esler, which makes it possible for Lama Jigmé to teach in Tibetan. 

On 13 May Lama Jigmé will start teaching a new preliminary practice – Vajrasattva.  These teachings will take place during the months of May, June and the first two weeks of July.
 
We are happy to announce that this new subject will be open for everyone. All members of CCT and PCL and non-members of whichever background are welcome to join the webinar. 

If you have not registered yet for the Wednesday Course but want to join the class now, please register by sending us an email (info@tibetculture.lu) and paying the fee applicable to the Centre’s account.

The course fee will be transferred to  Phuntsok Namgyal Ling Foundation, as it will be a contribution to Lama’s project to buy a piece of land where practitioners can do serious retreats and studies.

Vajrasattva

Through the practice of Vajrasattva and the process of purification, we are acknowledging that we have knowingly and unknowingly done, said, and thought many things that were not beneficial and were often quite harmful. To maximize the potency of Vajrasattva practice, we rely on what are called the four opponent powers: support, regret, resolution and action. 

In the absolute sense there is nothing to be purified, no one purifying, and no act of purification. But since we cannot seem to leave it at that, the defilements and obscurations arise. In the illusory perception of our ego-clinging, we experience endless suffering. Since we feel a need for purification, we have this practice as a relative skillful means.
